Will the dryness display/ electronic dry control board keep the heat from turning on? Is there a way to jump it out to see if the heat will work? tested the continuity on heater and fuse they are ok.
Answer Hello Doug,
The Dry control does not have anything to with the heat not coming on. You will want to double check all thermal fuses, thermostats and heater to make sure that they have continuity. Make sure that you check your L2 supply to make sure that you are not loosing that leg to the heater. You also want to check to make sure that you are not loosing your leg from your timer or from the motor.
Exactly the same problem that JIMI has with the MDE3500AYW on a MUE2000AYW.btw What is the dryness control board or does the MUE2000 have something different?
Answer Hello William,
The model that you have does have a dryness control 33001212. You would first check and make sure you have a neutral connection to the dryer and the white wire at the dryness control board. Also check the brown wire from the display board to the timer motor terminal on the timer. If you have the circuits on the wires, then replace the dryness control board. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Can I bypass the moisture control/dryness sensor to see if the dryer will work before I order one? I replaced the rollers and got a ground wire in the wrong place and when I turn on the dryer it blow that circut. Thanks
Answer Dan, There are a couple of tetst and "jumps" you can make at the dryness control board assembly. On the four wire, five pin connector on the control, you can jump across white pin#3 and Brown pin#2 with a paperclip or similar tool(just don't touch the jumper once installed) This will complete the neutral circuit to the timer motor, and the timer should advance. You can alos disconnect the blue #19 wire from the board terminal. This will make the control think the load is dry and the timer should also advance towards the off position in an auto dry setting.
Dryer will not heat up. Change heating element still no heat and mositure indicator only lights up on less mositure, so I cleaned mositure sensor and still no heat. Can this be the mositure indicator?
Answer Hello Alive. If there is a bad connection or part, it can always affect the unit. However, in this case, it sounds like either the thermostats or thermal cut-offs are bad or there may be a voltage issue. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity.

Moisture sensor light previously would display alternately between more and less moisture. Now only displays less and cloths do not dry fully. Should I replace the display or is there another cause?
Answer Arnieo, The first place to start is the moisture sensor bar(s) 503625, located in the drum, on the front bulkhead, under the lint screen grid. With some alcohol, and a rag or toothbrush, clean both the metal strips and area, then check the light and operation. If the problem persists, then repalce the dryness display board 33002389. Good Luck and Thanks
Maytage Dryer- Runs heats up (all cycles) just won't advance. I replaced the entire Timer assembly including skirt and knob but nothing changed. Could it be the dryness control. or is there something else I could check?
Thanks for your help
Answer Jimi, First check and make sure you have a neutral connection to the dryer and the white wire at the dryness control board.
